Coltsfoot

Anti-inflammatory properties, useful against cough, bronchial catarrh, hoarseness, pharyngitis and laryngitis, astringent, decongestant and soothing action useful for treating vein inflammation, but also skin irritations and diseases such as acne, pimples or ulcerations
The Coltsfoot, scientific name Tussilago farfara, is a plant belonging to the family of Asteraceae that grows on clayey soils and is characterized by yellow flowers very similar to daisies. Known since ancient times, this remedy has expectorant, anti-catarrhal and anti-inflammatory properties and is used to treat persistent cough, hoarseness, but also bronchitis, pharyngitis and laryngitis, asthma and bronchial catarrh. You can prepare the herbal tea by leaving in infusion a teaspoon of flowers in 250 ml of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, filter and drink a cup. Do not use during pregnancy and lactation and in young children, do not take the remedy for long periods of time because some of the substances contained in coltsfoot may be toxic to the liver. The coltsfoot, thanks to the astringent, soothing and decongestant properties, can also be used externally to calm the inflammation of the veins, ulcers, acne and pimples. In this case, as recommended by the herbalist Maria Treben, you can blend with a blender the leaves of coltsfoot and apply on the affected area.
